Prime News, National (New Delhi), May 7:- BJP’s Tajinder Bagga, whose arrest Friday set off a dramatic showdown involving two parties and police forces across three states, has been granted police security by a court in Delhi. Bagga has termed his detention by Punjab police as “illegal”.
- After his release from Punjab police custody, Bagga was brought to Delhi and produced before a court in Dwarka where the Duty Magistrate directed the Delhi Police to provide security to the BJP leader and his family. The Duty Magistrate decided to provide security after the BJP leader expressed an apprehension that such incidents may happen to him again, his lawyers said.
- Advocates YP Singh and Sanket Gupta, who appeared for Bagga, also said that a medical examination of Bagga revealed injuries in his back and shoulder. Bagga’s statement would be recorded before the Magistrate concerned on Monday.
- Bagga reached his residence in Delhi late on Friday night, nearly 20 hours after he was detained by Punjab Police from his home in the national capital. The family members of Bagga celebrated his return and distributed sweets to those present there.
- “Police officials started dragging Tajinder, they didn’t allow him to wear his turban, this is against our religious principles. We’ve asked Punjabi brothers to raise their voices against this. Finally, Tajinder is back, this is the victory of truth,” PS Bagga, the father of Tajinder Singh Bagga, was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
